Foo Fighters Stream “Something From Nothing”

The wait is over, Foo fans. The first song off Foo Fighters highly-anticipated new album has found its way online ahead of the record’s November street date.

Arriving on YouTube late Thursday afternoon, “Something From Nothing” showcases the latest evolution of Foo Fighters in just under five minutes’ time. It’s not the immediately catchy track many were expecting, but rather a slow burn effort that builds on a riff that sounds a lot like “Holy Diver” until everything boils over for a final hard rock jam session before things come to a close. I don’t think anyone could have expected …

Parkay Quarts Content Nausea

Parkay Quarts Announce New Album ‘Content Nausea,’ Stream New Song

Parquet Courts are back with a new release, and they’re changing things up along with it. The Queens, NY indie punk four piece have undergone a homophonic name shift to Parkay Quarts to coincide with one member completing a degree in mathematics and another starting a family, seeing Andrew Savage and Austin Brown work alongside two friends (Jackie-O Motherf*cker’s Jef Brown on Saxaphone and Eaters’ Bob Jones on fiddle) in their place.

The release, titled Content Nausea, is a 12-track LP that clocks in at 35 minutes and is Parkay Quarts’ second release of 2014. As such, it dials …

Melody's Echo Chamber

Melody’s Echo Chamber Shares New Single “Shirim”

America always seems a little late to the get-go for artists that aren’t in our neighborhood. One musician who, for the most part, slipped through the cracks in the US is French musician Melody’s Echo Chamber. The Paris-based multi-instrumentalist Melody Prochet mixes colorful psychedelia with melodic chamber pop. The outcome? A whole lot of smoky, dream-filled songs that don’t waste time filling your heart.

Written, produced, and released by Prochet, “Shirim” makes it hard to argue against Melody’s Echo Chamber being anything but talented. The song employs jangly chords, simple drums, and a spacey solo that gravitates in and …

Jessie Ware

Jessie Ware Streams Unreleased Song “12″

On October 21, UK crooner Jessie Ware will share her sophomore album Tough Love via PMR/Island Records. We’ve heard her gorgeous vocals on standout singles “Say You Love Me,” “Kind Of … Sometimes … Maybe,” and the title track, but now we get to hear an unreleased track, “12,” that can be downloaded for free.

The single features Rhye’s Robin Hannibal adding powerful lines to the velvety cut. It’s a shame to see him stripped from the album, although it already boasts a handful of impressive guest singers like Miguel, Ed Sheeran, BenZel, Julio Bashmore, The Invisible’s Dave …

Hear …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead’s New Single “A Million Random Digits”

It’s been a while since we’ve gotten news from rock act …And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead, but the band have been hard at work. Their newest record, IX, drops October 20 (pre-orders ongoing here). To celebrate the upcoming release, they’re streaming single “A Million Random Digits” now on Line of Best Fit.

The song is a quick three minutes with primal drums making way for dark guitar riffs. If they’re saying anything, it’s that they’re coming back with teeth growling, per usual. According to the band, the track title comes from a stolen …

Song Of The Day: Big K.R.I.T. – “Cadillactica”

Holy shit. We have a hit on our hands.

Big K.R.I.T. has been teasing the release of Cadillactica for the majority of 2014, and early this morning we finally learned when that highly-anticipated record will arrive in stores.

Set for a November 11 release, Cadillactica will almost certainly be one of the most discussed hip-hop releases of the year. K.R.I.T. topped many ‘best of’ lists in 2013, so all eyes are on the young emcee to prove his staying power in this incredibly fickle industry. To get fans hyped, the record’s title track has been made available for streaming, and …

Slipknot Stream “XIX”

“This song is not for the living. This song is for the dead.”

“XIX,” otherwise known as the opening track off Slipknot‘s highly-anticipated new album, has appeared online ahead of the record’s late October release. The track begins with a soft spoken Corey Taylor uttering the phrase above before transitioning into an acoustic-driven track that finds Taylor belting about how disconnected he feels from everything around him. He’s broken, alone, and contrary to what you might hear he is not doing well. He wants you to join him, and in many ways “XIX” serves as his call to arms. …

Bobby Shmurda Responds To Haters With “Bobby Bitch”

Bobby Shmurda came out of nowhere over the summer and quickly climbed urban music charts with his hit track, “Hot Nigga.” The song rose to popularity so fast that labels and blogs alike quickly hopped on the young emcee’s bandwagon, but after months passed with no follow-up many began to wonder whether or not Bobby could repeat his flash in the pan success.

The jury may still be out on the longevity of Bobby Shmurda’s career, but today the New York native fired back at haters with a new track titled “Bobby Bitch.” The song borrows heavily from …

trophy eyes

Trophy Eyes Stream “White Curtains”

Australian pop-punk/melodic hardcore wunderkinds Trophy Eyes have unveiled yet another track from their upcoming Hopeless Records debut full-length, Mend, Move On.

The track “White Curtains” is an absolute banger that packs a rather weighty emotional punch over its 3:03 running time as the band’s unique brand of pop-punk infused melodic-hardcore provides the perfect backdrop for vocalist John Floreani‘s desperate delivery as he recounts a deeply personal manner with unashamed honesty. The result is a track that has you feeling every syllable of his impassioned refrains as he screams “Torn between, being a child my whole life, or the man …

Badbadnotgood

BadBadNotGood Release New Single “Velvet”

Canadian hip-hop-infused jazz trio Badbadnotgood released their third LP, III, earlier this year, and now they’re back with a new single titled “Velvet.” Last we heard from them, they were playing alongside Ghostface Killah and Danny Brown on “Six Degrees,” but this sees a quieter side of the group.

If your day is off to a rough start, relax. “Velvet” sees the three sprucing things up with delicate piano solos and steady jazz drumming that’s quick to mellow you out. There’s a little saxophone partway through that gets rowdy, but other than that it’s a smooth trip …

Charli-XCX-Sucker

Listen to Charli XCX’s New Song “London Queen”

If British singer, songwriter, and all around badass Charli XCX moving her new album’s release date back to December 16 has you down (or even later for you UK folks), fear no more. The highly-anticipated sophomore album, Suckernow has a new single for fans to play on repeat until the holidays: “London Queen.”

The single rides on a punk bass line and peppy rhythm, teasing relations to the Ramones with several shouts of “oy” while she sings about her move to LA from the UK. There’s a huge fist-pumping chorus and endless rebellious angst, but its roots are …

Alex G

Stream Aleg G’s New Single “Hollow”

There are some genres so flooded with artists that it’s hard to decide what actually stands out from the rest. This year, the sappy singer-songwriter trope has been given a diamond in the pile and there’s no denying he’s as talented as he sounds. Pennsylvania native Alex Giannascoli, or better known as Alex G, pens that wobbling acoustic melody that makes you struggle to realize what’s the bigger emotion inside of you: nostalgic happiness or despondent sadness. He knows what he’s doing, and if he keeps it up, he could be this generation’s Elliott Smith.

The 21-year-old is still attending …
